    Not willing to install a leak that a bunch of people are saying bluetooth is borked. As a driver I rely on my BT. I'll wait for the official. I'm on the road right now so I don't have the time to fix my phone if I screw it up

    I can't blame you for that one. I'd really just like to hit check for updates, one time, and it be there.

    I'm in northern VA, been hitting check for updates since 11/20. I see now that they didn't even drop the update until yesterday! I hope to have it soon! The anticipation is killing me! Lol

    Haven't noticed any of these issues with bluetooth or network connection issues?

    No wifi issues. My bluetooth is in the truck which is in the shop. Will let ya know in a bit.

    The good news so far is it comes up as official, not custom.

    Bluetooth works!!!! And WOW!!!! ITS SOOOOO MUCH LOUDER!!!!

    It appears that they boosted the volume in the update which is fanfriggintastic. With 4.1.2 bluetooth and speaker volumes were very low. Now bluetooth is LOUD and speaker volume is right where it should be.

    Oh and calender syncs up with google no problem too. I know some people were asking about calender sync.

    I renamed the update to update.zip and placed it at the root of SD and did update from SD card in stock Recovery.

    One other check. When booting into ODIN mode. It does say official, and Knox Warranty Void count is at 0. So it is good in case you need to bring phone back. I'm sure at some point the XDA guys will find a way around knox to root without killing warranty.

    Thanks for the info. I tried to do the update but, the option of updating from external storage doesn't list the folder that my download was installed in. Any suggestions.

    Can you run apps from your sd card?!

    Okay, now like I said, you have to have stock Android recovery to do this. When you download the update file, you need to save it to the root of the SD Card. in other words, if you have your phone connected to your computer, and you click on it, you are given two options. CARD, or PHONE. You need to make sure that you are saving it to card. If you downloaded it directly on your phone, you need to move it. Its not actually on the card. /storage/sdcard, or storage/sdcard0. Dont ask me why Samsung in their infinite wisdom did this, but they did. You need to move it from sdcard0 to extSdcard. Dont bury it any deeper than that, just in the root of that folder. Then you turn the phone off(not reboot) OFF!

    Now you go into flash recovery mode by holding the Power button, Volume UP, and home. Dont let go of any of those buttons when the phone turns on. keep em pressed in till you see andy have a heart attack and die. Now you can let go of the button. You should now see the following, IF YOU DONT, YOU ARE NOT ON STOCK RECOVERY and you are going to have to get your phone to stock recovery FIRST!!!!

    This is what you should see.

    Android system recovery <3e>
    Volume up/down to move highlight
    Power button to select


    Reboot system now
    apply update from ADB
    apply update from external storage
    wipe data/factory reset
    wipe cache partition
    apply update from cache


    #MANUAL MODE#
    ---Appling Multi-CSC...
    Applied the CSC-code : SPR
    successfully applied multi-CSC.


    you need to scroll down to apply udate from external storage

    once you have it highlighted, hit the power button(just tap it, dont hold it in) to goto the next screen.

    Now you should see:

    Android system recovery <3e>
    choose a package to install:


    ../
    update.zip
    .android_secure
    /Android
    /(any other folders on the card)


    scroll down to update.zip and press and release the power button.
    Now wait. (its gonna take a while, like i dunno 5 minutes?)

    when its done reboot your phone, and it will update, once its COMPLETELY DONE,(home screen is not done) its gonna do a check and stuff, it will say successfully updated when done) Go ahead and update profile, and prl, then reboot the phone again.

    Sorry it took me a few, I was driving and had to get parked.

    Clearing google does nothing but break apps already installed. It has nothing to do with sprint updates.

    when you went back to stock/unrooted, did you use the SPH-L900_MA7_Stock_Restore file? Or did you use the one that doesn't do away with your data? The reason I ask, is I've gone back to stock, and attempted to do a manual install, but it fails. I successfully unrooted using odin3, but used the restore that didn't get rid of my data. I'm going to try and do a factory reset, and then run the update again. *crossing fingers*
